2021 Subaru Outback Price Rises with New Standard Features

Christian Wardlaw | Aug 06, 2020

Subaru has announced prices for the 2021 Outback, as well as changes to the popular midsize crossover SUV. For the new model year, the Subaru Outback gains standard steering responsive headlights, a rear seat reminder system, and a seat belt reminder system. A new paint color, Brilliant Bronze Metallic, is offered for all Outbacks except for the base trim level.

Otherwise, the Outback is the same as it was in 2020, when Subaru last redesigned the vehicle. It comes in standard and turbocharged XT model series, and all-wheel drive is standard equipment. The standard series offers base, Premium, Limited, and Touring trim. The Outback XT series comes in Onyx Edition XT (includes a blacked-out appearance), Limited XT, and Touring XT.

To help cover the added standard equipment, the 2021 Subaru Outback base price rises $150 to $26,795, not including a destination charge of $1,075 for most U.S. states. The most expensive version of the crossover, the Touring XT, is priced at $39,945 plus destination, a $250 increase over 2020.

Subaru bases the Outback on the Legacy midsize sedan. In fact, the Outback is essentially a Legacy station wagon sitting on a raised suspension and wearing an SUV costume. Not surprisingly, then, the Legacy sees similar standard equipment improvements and price increases. Brilliant Bronze is also offered for this car, starting with Premium trim.

As is true with the Outback, the 2021 Legacy is offered in standard and turbocharged XT format. Trim levels for the standard version include base, Premium, Sport, and Limited. The Legacy XT is available in Limited and Touring trim.

The base price of the 2021 Subaru Legacy rises $150 to $22,895, plus the $1,075 destination charge. At the opposite end of the lineup, the 2021 Legacy Touring XT costs $36,145, a $250 increase in price compared to the 2020 model.

Subaru says the 2021 Legacy and Outback will go on sale in the fall of 2020.
